Tufte Entertaining and illustrative Tufte shows strong examples of both elegant and ghastly designs taking several opportunities to improve the latter with surgical erasure These examples form the basis for a set of now canonized principlesThe only part I really disagreed with was the beginning of chapter 6 wherein the author proposes revising the box plot design by reducing it to a mere point floating between two li

Summary Ó PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Edward R. TufteThe Visual Display of uantitative Information

The Visual Display of uantitative Information Characters î 2 The classic book on statistical graphics charts tables Theory and practice in the design of data graphics 250 illustrations of the best and a few of the worst statistical graphics with detailed analysis of how to display data for precise effective uick analysis Design of the high resolution. 25 stars I read this book because 1 as a scientist I care a lot about visualizing information in ways that are both meaningful and attractive and 2 this book is hailed as a classic and cited by many when discussing what constitutes a good graphic After eying it on many coffee tables and office bookshelves I finally decided to pick it up from the library I m glad that I didn t buy it There are some positives a few inspiring examples of creative precise designs that tell a story and reveal insights about the data Some of the negative examples graphs that exaggerate or obscure the data or that are heavy handed and ugly are also useful to think about and are occasionally very funny I also liked how it touched on the history and evolution of different types of graphs However a major flaw is the lack of thought that was put into the writing Many of the axioms that Tufte proposes for graphics could eually well apply to writing For example don t patronize your audience and don t waste ink on non information Tufte unfortunately goes against both these principles with his disdainful verbose tone A great deal of verbiage and jargon could be stripped away to yield a text with much higher information density to use his own term The advice presented is reasonable but much of it is just common sense for anyone who s paid a little attention to elementary mathstatistics or who simply takes the time to look at graphs and think about how they could be improved He also contradicts his own advice about providing adeuate explanation for plots by offering zero explanation for several plots that are nearly inscrutable beyond saying this is great or this is silly His attitude towards artists is especially belittling I was hoping for a thoughtful take on the balance between beauty and practicality in graphic design All in all I think this the book has some smart points and good images but not uite enough to warrant its position on a pedestal
